gave a homeless man his 3,000 pounds gold necklace. The rocker, who has an estimated wealth of 110 million pounds with his TV star wife Sharon Osbourne
, handed the beggar his crucifix and told him to "pray" for a better future when he met him on the streets of Los Angeles.
"The guy asked Ozzy for some change. After searching his pockets Ozzy realized he didn't have any so handed him his 3,000 pounds gold necklace instead," a source told the Daily Star newspaper. "He took the gold crucifix from around his neck and gave it to the man telling him to pray with it. The man could not thank Ozzy enough."
Ozzy is not the only star to give a homeless person a generous gift. Leona Lewis
recently gave a begging man $100 for his rabbit after he told her he was so hungry he might have to eat it. The "Bleeding Love" singer, who is a strict vegetarian, took the rabbit home and told him to spend the money on some food.
A friend of the pop star said at the time, "Leona is the proud owner of a new white rabbit called Melrose which she is keeping in her garden. She knew she had to save it. Now it has the run of her garden without the fear of being cooked for dinner."
